Eclectic ambience! - Edit

I visited two Christmas’ ago and I’m finally just reviewing. The food options are limited but was very good. Met with the owner and he’s just the coolest guy. This place is really cool with the decor and history and all the different floors. Definitely visit during Christmas time when it’s all decorated and warm and then head upstairs for some dancing with big band music!

Pros: Ambience/decor

Good food, limited entrees - Edit

We went here bc we saw they had a couple vegan appetizers (hummus, tabouleh, baba ghanoush) and a vegan "faux-let" entree that sounded good. We placed our orders (husband got faux-let, I got vegan summer salad) and our waiter, who was very friendly, came back after we ordered and said they discontinued the faux-let. Well, crap. My husbands vegan but not a big salad guy so we were disappointed but the waiter said the chef could veganize a dish they were testing that night - "eggplant pockets". It was absolutely delicious, and we aren't big eggplant people. Idk if it will become a permanent menu item, but it should! The menu clearly labels vegan or veganizable options, and the restaurant itself is suuuper interesting and quirky. Just wish they had more to offer vegans than 1 entree and salads/apps. Maybe one day. We'd go back though if we were in the area.

Pros: Really bizarre, cool interior, Friendly staff, Tasty food

Cons: Limited vegan entrees

Great Date Night Place - Edit

I love coming here for a romantic date. The server knew what vegan was on my recent date the other night which was refreshing. We ordered the dirty hummus without cheese, the baba ganoush, the tabouleh and a side of broccoli in olive oil (you have to specify no butter). We also sprang for the extra veggies for 3 dollars on two of the apps. I really didn't want the offering that they had for the entree. It was a summer pasta with veggies and I had just had spaghetti for dinner. Plus that is kind of a run of the mill vegan entree dish. Maybe it was good though. My fiance had never been before and he loved all the authentic memorabilia from this old pharmacy turned restaurant. We both loved sharing all the appetizers. I recommend this place for a fancy vegan date when you aren't too focused on being wowed by vegan options. The baba ganoush was my favorite though.

Pros: Babaganoush, romantic and cute, side vegetables

Cons: entree is a veggie pasta dish, no dessert
